Single Edge Razor Acquisition Thread.


I grew a tail.
In order to keep new scores and acquisitions easier to find lets post them all in this thread. :001_tt1:
Here's my find of today, GEM Micromatic Bullet-tip or Flying wing Single Edge twist to open safety razor.

This razor is in good condition, some scratches and the handle has some plate loss as has the head:

And another item I won from the same seller on that well known auction site, advertised as GEM Push button Single Edge Safety Razor:

And I found out that my favorite vendor on the Bay had a couple of nice items up for sale today also!

A Clog Pruf, if identified correctly.


And a GEM jr.


A few coins go a long way in SE land!
Finally snagged a Damaskeene on the 'Bay. Now I just need to find a Jewel/Streamline and I'll be set. The seller thought it was a hoot that I was planning on shaving with this. Apparently she'd never heard of B&B.

I also have another Gem 1912, but the head's smaller & a different style handle.

Are there different "sub-models" within the 1912 Model?

I think alex2363 knows, maybe we should ask.

From my own starting collection I can confirm that there are more than one style handle.
I have the same ornate or chain link handle, and a pretty similar handle as the other one also.

Whether this reflects an other model or just a handle change over the years, I do not know.
I found this single edge 7 0 clock on ebay for a nice price so i had to have it, Plus it uses desplined blades just like
the early autostrops do

$DSC_0414.jpg $DSC_0415.jpg its in better condition than it looks, plus i have now centered the blade properly.
Picked this one up the other day.
EverReady 1914 "little lather catcher" complete with box on eBay. Excellent condition and shaves like a boss!

I went to a couple of antique stores today and found this GEM 1912. Looks like it's in decent shape. It even had a GEM Damaskeene blade loaded. Anyone ever tried shaving with one of these?

This old beauty just arrived. Can anyone identify it for me? It looks like a very early Ever-Ready travel razor. And where should I look for info about cleaning it up.
